    What can we learn from these brands?


    Brands can attract a bigger audience or gain traffic by offering their website visitors education, inspiration, and entertainment through blogs. As such, both the brand and the potential customer gain some benefit. 


    To summarize,


    Your blogs should:

    Your blogs should not:

    Add value. Provide content that your target audience will want to read. It should gain either by educating, entertaining, or inspiring them.

    Oversell the brand. You already have the product pages to sell the products. Instead, you could redirect them there but don’t make your blog a sales pitch.

    Have clear goals. What do you want to get out of blogging? Your content can depend on what your goals are such as if you’re trying to gain traffic, promote, or sell more.

    Consist only of product photos. Complement photos with good brand storytelling. A couple of photos is not enough so tell the audience something that can captivate them.

    Build your brand. Elevate your brand by giving it a voice. This is where you have the freedom to do some storytelling to connect with your consumers.

    Be too disorganized. Avoid having random articles that have nothing to do with your branding or brand story. 

    Be consistent. Post at least once a month to keep your blog active and for previous audiences to keep checking.


    Having a blog allows your brand to tell its story which helps build your brand identity. It can create a community of people who identify with your brand’s culture. When your brand stands for something that your customers can identify with, it makes them engage and discuss your brand which may provide you with more visibility, positive brand recall, and maybe even more sales.
